Caitlyn Jenner has followed an extraordinary path, from Bruce Jenner, decathlon gold medal winner and national celebrity after the 1976 Olympics, to reality television star to transgender activist on the cover of Vanity Fair in 2015 and the docu-series I am Cait. For the launch of her highly anticipated memoir, The Secrets of My Life, she joins her co-author, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Buzz Bissinger, and CHF Associate Artistic Director Alison Cuddy for a conversation about men, women, and what it means to find one’s courage.
